When mold is present in a building, it can make the home or office unsafe to inhabit until you resolve the problem to protect the health of the residents or employees. Mold remediation is necessary to thoroughly remove affected material and restore the damaged items or features. When you need to hire mold remediation services, it’s important to know what to expect from the process when a professional arrives on your property in Ormond Beach, FL.
Creating a Remediation Plan
Documenting the mold situation in writing and videos helps to create a thorough plan for treating the affected areas. It can also manage liability and even point to larger trends with mold growth. Calculating the extent of the mold growth is a must because it may be growing in multiple areas.
Remediating the Mold
You’ll need to hire a qualified professional to remediate the mold, eliminate excess water and mitigate water damage. The technician needs to isolate the contaminated area and remove damaged materials while suppressing dust. All the affected materials can go into a plastic bag before the team cleans all nonporous surfaces to thoroughly remove mold and mold spores.
Thoroughly Drying Everything
The next step involves cleaning and drying every affected area in the building to ensure that all the moisture completely evaporates. Professionals may use fans and dehumidifiers while also increasing the internal temperature in the building by setting the thermostat. You can replace or repair any of the materials cut out to restore the functionality of the setting.
